What is SlimPower?
SlimPower is touted as a turning point for those who have tried everything but still have excess pounds to lose. SlimPower can be the miracle you have been looking for and more as long as you are willing to change your lifestyle and eating habits. With a plethora of weight loss supplements on the market, how do you know which one to choose? Every new diet supplement seems to promise that this is the cure that you have been waiting for, the miracle is there for the taking. It’s often difficult to believe the promises when almost all the supplements you read about and compare contain the exact same ingredients. Does SlimPower have a special ingredient to make them stand out from all the rest? Let’s take a closer look…
What are the Ingredients in SlimPower?
- Garcinia Cambogia: This ingredient helps to suppress appetite and inhibits conversion of carbohydrate into stored fats. Because SlimPower is a proprietary blend its hard to say if there is enough of this ingredient to be effective, but we do know that you need at least 1550 mg of Garcinia Cambogia to effectively suppress your appetite before each meal.
- Green Tea Extract: Boosts metabolism to help burn fat and contains good antioxidants. This ingredient could cause side effects for those who are caffeine sensitive depending on how much is used in SlimPower. Too much of a good thing can be detrimental.
- Guarana Extract: Helps boost metabolism by increasing energy levels and also suppresses appetite. Despite the claim on SlimPower’s website that this will not cause any side effects, Guarana extract is a caffeine-based ingredient and will cause side effects. Some of these side effects may include the jitters, elevated heart rate, high blood pressure, headaches, and/or a crash a couple hours after consumption.
- Citrus Aurantium: Enables thermogenesis to burn calories more efficiently. Once again, the website misleadingly tells you that this will boost metabolism and increase energy without side effects but that is not true. Expect side effects similar to caffeine and Guarana Extract. Caffeine sensitive consumers now have a triple whammy to deal with when taking this supplement.
- Kelp Powder: Is supposed to increase metabolic rate but there is little evidence of this ingredient actually leading to weight loss. The use of Kelp Powder is strongly cautioned by the FDA; especially by minors, pregnant or nursing women, those taking levothyroxine, estrogen, thyroid prescriptions, diabetes medications, anticoagulants, anti-platelet drugs, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, or laxatives. Heavy metal and arsenic poisoning may occur if taken in high amounts. We do not know how many milligrams are contained in SlimPower, since the manufacturer keeps labeling details to a minimum due to proprietary blend status.
- Cinnamon: Controls blood sugar levels, good ingredient for diabetics .
- Chromium: Trivalent chromium (Cr(III)) is required in trace amounts for sugar and lipid metabolism within the body. It is toxic in larger amounts. How much Chromium do we have in SlimPower?
The SlimPower website states: “SlimPower adds five more all-natural ingredients (after the first two ingredients, Garcinia Cambogia and Green Tea Extract) to help make excess weight disappear. The Plan also includes comprehensive guides to how to eat, when to eat, when to exercise and how to live a healthy lifestyle!” Something to consider: Since part of the SlimPower plan is to eat healthy foods at the right times during the day and to exercise each day as part of a healthy lifestyle, how is one to know whether the change of lifestyle made the biggest difference? It’s difficult to isolate what helped one to lose weight; the ingredients or the dramatic change in lifestyle, just sayin’.
Although the makers of SlimPower want to present a high quality, side-effect-free, natural weight loss supplement; this product is far from it. Many of the ingredients have serious side effects and in the case of the proprietary ingredients, we will not know how much we are ingesting – not very responsible on our part.
Also, there is no one ingredient that is unique to this product, most of the ingredients can be found in almost any other supplement on the market. This product may help you lose weight, but if you are serious about weight loss and want a high quality product that will help you lose a substantial amount of weight; keep doing your homework.
